Students, Parents and Guardians
Sheridan Middle School
Our first nine weeks have gone by quickly. We kicked off the school year with a very successful Health Walk. The students raised $3000, to be used throughout the year for our school needs. Thanks to all volunteers, staff and contributors.
Our eighth grade National Junior Honor Society has been inducted. They have been active in raising awareness against bullying, hosting a mix it up day during lunch modules and unity day.
Mason Boyer addressed each grade level to talk about Cerebral Palsy/Bullying and how it affects him. He talked of crossing social boundaries and accepting everyone for their differences.
The eighth graders took a tour of our Mid-East Career Center to explore career choices.
Sixth grade chose a career and had fun dressing as their career choice.
Some hi-lights from our sports teams were:
- 7th and 8th grade volleyball ended with winning seasons. The 8th grade volleyball team also finished second in the MVL tournament.
- Our cross country team and the middle school golf team, both finished the season undefeated.
- 7th grade football ended their season with a record of 5-3. The 8th grade football team ended with a record of 7-1.
Our Parent/Teacher conferences were well attended and we saw many new faces. Thanks to all staff and parents who participated.
Our Generals Closet has seen a lot of activity already this year. Students are receiving items as needed every day. We are in need of belts, shoes, sweat pants, hats and gloves. Please remember us if you have any gently used items.
In December, our Band and Choir will be performing on Tuesday, December 16 in the gymnasium at 7:00pm. Also, The Christmas Dance will be held on December 12th from 2:45pm – 5:00pm.
We will be having a Penny Drive for families in need and a canned food drive. Our book fair will be December 12 through 18.
Christmas break will start on Monday, December 22, 2014 and we will return on Monday, January 5, 2015.
